Property description

VACATION THE
ROCKY COAST OF MAINE

This shore front one bedroom fully furnished cottage is nestled among spruce trees with decks overlooking the ocean and a salt-water cove, a very private and serene setting. It is located at Spruce Head, an island connected to the mainland by a causeway. From the decks, the tidal water can be watched. Tidal water means that there are ten feet of water at the water’s edge when the tide is in and a quarter mile of clam-flats when the tide is out. A great array of feeding birds of the sea and the shore can be observed such as; sandpipers, ducks, shags, seagulls and great blue herons. Harbor seals have been seen diving for breakfast or dinner.

Your fun-filled week may include visiting lighthouses, hiking, walking on the rocks and enjoying the beaches. You may also experience such excursions as whale and seal watching, schooner cruises or taking the ferry to one of our islands.

Within a fifteen minute drive is an eighteen-hole golf course with a view of the Atlantic Ocean. Camden Hills offer hiking trails with spectacular views of Penobscot Bay. You can rent a bike or enjoy an afternoon kayaking around the Muscle Ridge Islands. Kayak rentals are available locally, including day trips with a luncheon on one of the islands.

To appease your intellectual side, the Farnsworth Museum, the Shore Village Museum and the Owls Head Transportation Museum are also nearby. One can view paintings by Andrew Wyeth, lights from lighthouses, an air show, or attend an antique auto auction.

Our unique central location also allows for day trips to Arcadia National Park or the International Ferry Service to Nova Scotia, all located in Bar Harbor. In the opposite direction, Freeport offers the famous L.L. Bean store plus many outlet shops. But of course if you prefer to stay close to home on Spruce Head Island, we have many unique and quaint shops (including antique) in the downtowns of Rockland, Thomaston and Camden.

Dining out can also be a unique experience. Enjoy a lobster on one of the wharfs, a meal at a European bistro, or at one of many of our “Down East” restaurants, all located within a short driving distance. However, you may also dine in. The cottage has a fully equipped kitchen that includes a microwave, gas grill, toaster, stove, refrigerator and coffee maker.

The cottage is available from May 1st through the end of October. It has one bedroom with a double bed and a queen size futon couch in the living room. You are required to furnish your own bath and bed linens. There is a TV with cable service, a radio/CD tape player, and wifi service for your convenience. There is also good cell phone reception. Laundry facilities are available in nearby Rockland or Thomaston.
